more. >> dave writes, i'm awake to see whether rex ryan thinks a butt kicking would be better facilitated with tim tebow on the field. >> he doesn't think so. says he's going to stick with mark sanchez. i have a feeling that's coming up right now on "morning joe." it starts right now. >>> up until now, governor, he has failed to enumerate any of the deductions that he would eliminate in order to make the math work on his deficit plan and his tax plan. are we going to get those details in the course of the debate? >> well, you know, david, i wish you guys were just as tough on the president. the president says he's going to create a million new manufacturing jobs. he doesn't say how. he says he's going to reduce the long-term debt and deficit by $4 trillion. doesn't say how he's going to do it. you know, let's be fair here. governor romney has laid out a direction and a vision for the direction of this country. he's not an accountant. he's not going to go line by line as much as you'd like him to do through the budget. but let's hold the president to the same standard and criti
ryan pick and the gop convention last month, the romney campaign has stumbled repeatedly. yet mr. romney, who is losing by five or more points in iowa, colorado, wisconsin, michigan, ohio, florida and virginia, sees blue skies ahead. asked how he intended to turn his campaign around, mr. romney told "60 minutes," well, it doesn't need a turnaround. and romney surrogates were out over the weekend blaming the liberal media for the campaign's troubles. the press didn't treat ronald reagan and george w. bush any less unfairly, and both men managed not only to win the presidency but to get re-elected. mr. romney would do better to focus more on reducing his unforced errors and less on the fourth estate's political bias. if whining about the liberal media was a winning strategy for republicans, newt gingrich would be the nominee." >> well, and newt gingrich is a great example -- i don't mean to go back there -- a great example of the problem we're talking about here. because -- >> no. >> -- no, instead of stepping forward and separating himself from this candidate, he somehow, because
of like where they go romney/ryan instead of ryan/ryan. >> exactly. people want to vote for the person they think will win. republicans typically do not get on their feet quite as much as democrats do. some of their events are so staid and sometimes business related events. >> you went to some sarah palin events. >> many. >> people get on their feet for sarah palin. >> they did for her. >> they get on their feet for people they believe are true blue conservatives. they're just not excited about mitt romney. we have a lot of new polls out today, josh. i was saying a week ago they're 45 days, there's time to turn it around. there are debates. there are pictures today of people lining up in ohio to go vote. >> iowa. >> already opened up. >> in iowa. they're opening up next week in ohio on tuesday. >> virginia is already voting. >> virginia is already voting. guess what? you can tell i'm an old guy and i ran a decade or two ago. >> you got all the states and rules wrong. >> i got the rules wrong. thinking in terms of a 1980 campaign that is not the reality. look at the people lined up to v
ryan. >> he hasn't been very specific. but i think his bigger problem is the first one you said. that he's got to create some sense of connectivity or relationship with the voters. i think that's really his goal as well as what we were talking about in the earlier segment of trying to bring a clear depiction of obama's policies and the fact they haven't done everything they were supposed to. >> john harwood, can he do that in a debate? is the debate the setting? that would be when you're most clenched and concerned about every word that comes out of your mouth. how do you show the things mitt romney needs to communicate to the public? >> it's possible. he's got to play really well. one of the nationals' pitchers got hammered the other night and he said i lost my arm slot. and he was talking about the exact right angle of the ball to the delivery of the plate. mitt romney's got to find precisely the right arm slot. aggression with the right amount of respect for a popular president. he's got to figure out a way to flush out his agenda without getting to the unpopular parts he's b
was able to explain that in a way that paul ryan or, you know, a lot of other conservatives could have explained it in two or three seconds. yes, i did that in massachusetts, but let me tell you something. what works in massachusetts doesn't work in michigan, doesn't work in mississippi, doesn't work in minnesota. we've got 50 different states, and let's have experimentation. let's have competition. let's have legislative laboratories and see what suits each state's residents the best. he missed that. he could have explained that away in january in iowa and could have been talking about this bill for the past eight, nine months in an excited, positive way. another thing, steve ratner, i want to go to you on this specifically because you talked -- yesterday we talked to governor ed rendell who said that he was so impressed with mitt romney when he went up to massachusetts. and mitt romney was explaining to him all the details of this health care plan and all the great things that it did for the residents, for the people of massachusetts. and he sat there going man, this guy is so impres
'll start with politics this morning. >> okay. >> mitt romney and paul ryan continue their bus tour through ohio today. in an interview yesterday with peter alexander, the republican candidate was asked about his recent poll numbers and why he continues to trail in many critical swing states. >> i'm very pleased with the fact that we have a campaign that is taking our message to the people across america. and look, we're going to win. there's no question in my mind, we're going to win. the polls go up, polls go down, there have been some weeks i'm ahead, some i'm behind. you know, all these states that voted for barack obama last time right now the majority of people in those states are saying they don't want to vote for barack obama. >> okay. what's next? barack obama should be ashamed of himself. >> wait a minute. >> go ahead. >> president obama's in new york city for the united nations general assembly. and the clinton global initiative, which we're going to this morning. >> are we really? >> so your boyfriend -- but one of the first orders of business was taping an interview with the wo
